Breaking News John Egbunu Leaving: USF Has Pretty Much No One To Play Basketball

Class Of 2013 Recruits John Egbunu and Drew Davis Commit To USF Basketball

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 09: Head coach Stan Heath of the South Florida Bulls talks to his team during a timeout against the Cincinnati Bearcats during the second round of the 2011 Big East Men's Basketball Tournament presented by American Eagle Outfitters at Madison Square Garden on March 9, 2011 in New York City.

With the Class of 2012 almost filled up, Stan Heath and the coaching staff are already working on talking care of the Class of 2013. According to Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com, the Bulls received commitments from 7'0" C John Egbunu and 6'0" PG Drew Davis last night. Asst. Coach Steve Roccaforte was the main recruiter for Egbunu and Davis according to Georgia Elite Magazine.

Neither have much in the way of rankings at this point, but Egbunu was rated as the 22nd best center for the Class of 2013 according to ESPN. As with most post prospects from outside of the country (John is from Nigeria), Egbunu is a bit of a project but he is extremely athletic for his size and has a nose for the basket. Here's a small scouting report of Egbunu from a showcase back in March.

Its hard to find anything on Davis at this point, but he looks to be making the transition from off guard to the point. In this article from 2010, Davis was still listed as an SG when he participated in a FIBA Americas Tournament. If you read the Georgia Elite Magazine, Davis' biggest attribute is his shooting ability, and he once made an absurd 13 three-pointers in a game.

If no one transfers out this season, USF will only have one scholarship available left for the Class of 2013. We have a couple of highlight videos for you after the jump.

Welcome to USF John and Drew!
